More games were purchased in the first 18 months of the Wii's life than any other console's first year and a half, Nintendo said today.
About 50 million games were sold for the Wii in its first 18 months, compared to about 42 million games in the first 18 months of the PS2. The Xbox 360 came in at 30 million or so, the Xbox at roughly 28 million and finally the PS3 at about 20 million.
